Roger Federer is playing this year’s Wimbledon Championship with a single goal in hist mind. To win back the title lost in 2008 and regain the World Number 1 spot. Half of the job is already done, with Rafael Nadal being out of the race at the All England Club. The Spaniard decided not to play in this 3rd Grand Slam of the season after continuous problems with his knees.
Federer is closer than he has ever been in the last year of regaining his top spot in the Men’s Singles race. Two months ago this seemed impossible. Nadal had 5000 points ahead, was unbeatable on clay court and the Roland Garros was knocking at the door. Roger was very close in losing his 2nd spot in favor of Novak Djokovic.
Now, Nadal lost the Madrid Masters final, lost prematurely at the Roland Garros, couldn’t defend his title in Queen’s and is not able to play at Wimbledon. The Madrid Masters final was won by Federer, as a fatigued Nadal couldn’t provide the usual resistance. The Spaniard couldn’t delay his knee problems any longer and his decline started.
The 28-year-old Swiss needs the title at Wimbledon to get back to the top spot. He has a strong contender though. Local favorite, Andy Murray, is playing his best tennis so far and will become also World Number 1 in case of a Final win.
